Professional, Qualified Phone Interpreters

You get high-quality interpreters. That's our promise to you. How do we back it up? Our credentialing process, a method of separating bilingual speakers from competent, professional interpreters. This ensures we are not a training ground for bilinguals and that our professional interpreters are already skilled subject-matter experts, proficient in the art of interpreting, and experienced in diverse settings.

Phone Interpreter Requirements 

Rapport International is dedicated to identifying and contracting highly qualified foreign language interpreters. Our telephone interpreters are required to have a minimum of 2 years interpreting experience and 40 hours of interpreter training prior to working with us. They then must score 90% or better on a rigorous interpreting exam. 

The interpreting exam tests them on four criteria:

  • Industry-specific terminology
  • Language competency in both languages, including slang
  • Interpreter skills including customer service and memory retention
  • Ethics which includes confidentiality and awareness of conflict of interest
